Hood – ?Outside Closer? – [Domino Recording] – (33 rpm)
This is Hood’s sixth full-length release and their first one in four years. But the Leeds, UK-based quartet have released some singles and EPs in that period.
The music is beautiful and smart indie pop, equal parts natural sounds (guitar, vocals, drums, violin, piano) and electronic sounds (sampled vocal loops, beats, synth). It sounds like it has less electronics than it really does.
It may take a few listens to get through the shiny finish. Though each song is it’s own creation and has its own sound, the entire album hangs together.
Each side starts off with an upbeat track and then unwinds into an introspective vibe. I really like this album.
